Routes & Branches 1/18/14

I have been listening to Lucinda Williams 25th anniversary release of her self titled Rough Trade album and decided to make it my feature disc for today's show. Although this was her 3rd album, this was the first of Williams' albums to make radio air-play and for many of us, myself included, was the first time that we even heard of Williams. Listening back to the whole album again I was surprised as to how many of the tunes I not only recognized but had a strong appreciation for. If I was listening to this album as a new record today, over half of the tracks would be marked to be played on my show and it would be on my 'best of the year' list too.
